A solution for complex support needs

The Octoback is a comfortable specialist backrest offering adjustable support for the pelvis and spine. As users grow and skeletal changes occur, the Octoback can be easily modified to accommodate evolving requirements.

The Octoback provides support for complex needs, as well as pelvic obliquity and scoliosis. It fits all Chunc chairs and is cross-compatible with many other brands too.

Localised support

The Octoback is made to meet each individual’s specific needs and is built with two to six lateral segments.  Each of these segments is positioned independently to offer localised support for the pelvis, lumbar and thoracic spine. The segments can be easily adjusted in response to growth, weight gain or loss as well as skeletal changes that occur over time.

In detail

Octoback creates a pelvic girdle, which can be extended to provide thigh laterals to manage adduction and adjusted to the seat width required. Thoracic level support is offered with width adjustment easily set.

Compatible backrest

Octoback fits every chair in the Chunc range and is also compatible with a large number of other wheelchairs, mobility bases and specialist seating options.

I was so fed up with pushing a heavy wheelchair around, it was doing my back no good. My physio suggested a Chunc wheelchair and I have never looked back. My daughter has cerebral palsy and no balance, finding the right chair for her was very difficult. The Chunc wheelchair is very light to push and the pram style handle can be adjusted to suit different carers. It has the right support for her and a recent X-ray confirmed that her spine is completely straight.  The different attendants at day care all say that out of all the wheelchairs they see the Chunc is their favourite.  The service we receive from Chunc is excellent. They are very quick to respond, friendly and always there for you if you have any questions.

Elaine Steele, Parent

We have been Chunc customers for the past seven years. Both daughters have them and recently have moved to moulded seats. We have found them both attractive and robust. Although a little expensive initially their longevity makes them a cost effective option. Our seating specialist, Ian Park, has always been friendly and knowledgeable providing excellent service, even travelling to our holiday destination to repair a gas strut after an emergency breakdown. I highly recommend Chunc.

Tracey Newell, Parent

The new Chunc One wheelchair base with its sleek design and colours of black and red is very attractive. Its shock absorbing properties are par excellence, especially for users who like motion. Together with its wide wheels with deep tread, this makes for ease of pushing for the attendant – especially on uneven surfaces and rough terrain.

I have always felt assured that with our Chunc wheelchairs our son is comfortable, safe and happy – even when we go out in the car. Our Chunc wheelchair has adapted easily to accommodate growth, and it has never ever let us down.

T Nicholls, Parent

I have been a fan of Chunc products for 16 years. I find it to be one of the most versatile seating systems/wheelchairs on the market. It can accommodate a huge range of users. And with the ability to offset supports, recline, accommodate asymmetry and still achieve good posture and comfort, it is a fairly unique set up. I recently did an assessment with a child who had been in a moulded seat for some years, and her posture was better in the Chunc wheelchair than in the mould! The Chunc rep I use is second to none and makes working with the company seamless.
